My goodness what a week! Sorry I have been MIA! And that I haven't been doing any commenting (I read everything people I swear!) I've been having computer issues and Vista and I are no longer BFF's. I should be back now though just minus a few weeks of mostly unrecoverable files... and yes I do backup however someone didn't tell me I needed to... I forgive him though because it really is Vista's fault... well not the lost files just the whole crashing part.
I have been crafting but I cant show some of it for a while because it is for people and I want it to be a suprise... I am sure this is a problem for everyone as christmas is getting closer! Anyway here is something I can show you.
I collected city pens for my funny german hat (what are those things called) when I was growing up and I wanted some way to display the ones that I still have (mom have you found anymore of these I know I used to have more). I love my header photo which my mom took in Austria this last summer so I decided to use it for a back drop for my pins.
It's not a perfect copy of the picture but you get the gist. I had alot of fun doing this it is actually 3d there are 7 layers of felt that build the picture. Which is why the shadows are so bad in the picture.
The box is from the Michael's Martha Stewart line. I got a bunch of them on clearance so you will be seeing some more projects with these in them. (If I can think stuff up)
